on the economy wednesday night. but foreign policy is something that's critically important given the current state of foreign policy where we have a leader now whose foreign policy has made us weak in the eye of the rest of the world whereas governor romney believe in peace through strength. >> all right. let's talk about the expectations here, karen. the game from both sides has kicked into high gear over the weekend. i want to remind everybody. take a listen. >> president obama's a very, he's a very gifted speaker. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> we'd expected all along governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any other candidate in history. >> and i think for us to raise the expectations, he's got to do something spectacular. those things don't happen in debates anymore that there's a spectacular event or gaffe. they're too well rehearsed. >> in this week's debate president obama has a great deal to lose. romney's is the most difficult position. obama's is the most dangerous.
opportunity. >> well, and foreign policy clearly is going to be an area where mitt romney will want to make a turn in terms of the narrative of the campaign. one other issue that is now coming into the forefront is the benghazi attack and news over the weekend that the four americans including the u.s. ambassador there who were killed according to politico, romney advisers are now split over how broadly they should hit the president over his handling of that attack. and why it took so long to acknowledge that it was an act of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the
, egypt and libya and the political unrest in arab countrys? 45-46 disapprove. foreign policy, 46 to president. 40 to romney. that is closing. is this a vulnerability for the president for your campaign? >> no. we will have the debate on foreign policy and the president is anxious to talk about how the country is safer than we've been in a long time. the daniel and deg regation we've done to al-qaeda. no doubt, they -- deg regation to al-qaeda. there are dangerous places throughout the world. benghazi is one of them. >> bret: robert gibbs, thank you. >> thank you for having me again. >> bret: okay. on the other side of the break, eric fermstrom with the romney campaign joins us with that campaign's perspective. >> bret: less than two-and-a-half hours from now, governor romney and president obama will be on that stage. no grapevine tonight so we can bring you more debate coverage. we just heard, as you know from obama senior advisor robert gibbs. now joined by romney senior advisor eric burnstrom. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> bret: what does the governor need to do to
. >> there is a foreign policy debate exploding around him and this is supposed to be a domestic policy debate. the question now as darrell issa and know jason chav fits right letters to hillary clinton demanding answers to what happened in benghazi, questions about whether people there asked for more security, whether there was an intelligence failure, there's talk of plans for retaliation, if the targeting can be found, what is the response to the republican criticism and criticism from some democrats that this was not handled well? >> well, i'll leave some of the details to my white house friends because it's better for them to answer some of these substantive questions but say a couple of things. one, since the moment of that attack we've been focused on two things, embassy security all over the world and getting to the bottom of that attack and bringing to justice the people who perpetrated it. that's what our focus has been on. as new information has come to light, the white house and the administration has shared it. to congress, to the american people. i think this criticism from the r
. to deal with china, it is the fundamental problem of american foreign policy right now. the difficulty is chinese history is totally different. we have been secure through most of our history from other countries, the impact of foreign societies on us. the chinese state has always been surrounded by a multiplicity of states. the management of all barriers has been a principal necessity of chinese foreign policy. we have done it on a pragmatic basis. the chinese have learned to take a longer, strategic view because one cannot decide the outcome of any issue unless you look at it in a longer-term. but these societies have two different approaches. it is an ever evolving situation. china is now rising country. we have the status quo countries similar to germany and england and therefore the likelihood is something like that might occur again. remember, china is a country that is returning to what it believes it has always been, namely the center of asian affairs. but it is inevitable that the rise in china will impinge on the united states. there are a number of things we need to keep in
then the foreign policy. but we interviewed most of the women in the book. on the senate of foreign relations committee. but standing next to the generals and elizabeth dole said it almost wrecked my car after the iowa straw poll when elizabeth did well. they had around to it -- roundtable the next morning to talk about her surprising strong finish but she was there a lot with her husband was there. she has no commander-in-chief background. what has she done? i almost wrecked my car at that point*. >> women have to worry about being too feminine. either way they go there are problems. men have to worry about appearing to feminine but no one will say he is too masculine. it is a lot more complicated. but to be more aggressive to be labeled in some way. there are barriers that where they are caught were men are free to move. >> also those surrogates elizabeth dole was a good example she had her own plane and crisscross the country by have not seen the male spouse at the caliber of the women we have had. it is fair to say bill clinton was hillary clinton's best ally and worst detractor. also bob
over mr. romney on the broad issue of foreign policy. and then we get into some real contested ground. the president is favored on the issue of taxes, but on the generic question of who would be better trusted to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom line, there's no question as to who you would rather be here, right? you would rather be president obama than mitt romney looking at these numbers. that plus 19 advantage that the president has on looking out for the middle class, that is a death nail for mr. romney's campaign if he cannot turn that around. but i think looking ahead to tonight's debate, there is a real opportunity in the huge disconnect in the electorate, in a wa
can fill in the gap. so if they aren't that experience in foreign policy than you get somebody running with you to take care of that, or vice versa. but women seem to have have all of those things. and we interviewed most of the women in the book, and they talk about that, nancy spoke about and said -- she'd been on the senate foreign relations committee. she was an expert on africa specifically, but she had that but she said, you know, part of her issue she said was the one look presidential standing next to the generals who were -- who will tower over me. she laughed when she made this comment. elizabeth dole, i was recounting i almost wrecked my car going up to campus one morning after the iowa straw poll in 2000 when elizabeth dole did very well. so they had a roundtable of pundits on national public radio the next morning ago talking about are sort of surprising strong finish and they were attributing it well, she been here a lot when her husband was running. so we really can't take her service because she has no commander in chief background. what has she done that would prepare
a good idea next week. romney will give a major foreign policy speech . he will give the address in virginia. romney is critical of the president's foreign policy . he will focus on the terror attack in benghazi. a lot of folks critized the obama administration about how it respond changed stories. president obama considered putting bin laden on trial. president obama planned to hold a criminal trial in federal court if bin laden was captured and not killed in the daring navy seal raid . he apparently felt due process and rule of law would be the best weapon against al-qaida and contradicts many advisors opposed the raid. >> it is back to the bargaining table and american airlines resuming the stalled negotiations with the pilot's union. >> we had seats come loose. it is a hazard later in flight. >> yeah, it could have been messy there. >> yesterday a plane's landing gear, warning lights jammed after taking off from dallas. the plane headed to st. louis and had to make an emergency landing in texas. no one was hurt. >> $127,000 worth of jewelry swiped from the new york city brown
under control. your statement is not accurate. >> let me go back to the policy questions, foreign policy question about the situation recently with the north africa. american taxpayers billions of dollars -- it was a big issue when we saw the scenes will see in a moment in egypt and the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. a radical islamist group attacked the u.s. embassy and tore down the american flag. in the same day, in libya, an assault on the consulate resulted in the death of the american ambassador christopher stevens and three others. these images echo the worst -- the recall those moments in 1979 with the taking of american hostages at the embassy in iran. u.s. taxpayers as an enormous 1.6 billion doris to egypt, -- $1.6 billion to egypt, which is now run by a former member of the muslim brotherhood. should the u.s. give up foreign aid to these nations, mr. sadler? >> no. not now, we have a fledgling government being formed a. with egypt withholding funds, the editorial board agreed is time for us to stop the old on that aid. it is in our best interests to stay involved.
d date will focus on foreign policy. earlier this week the carnegie endowment for peace posted a discussion on the president's role in leading foreign policy. they talked about challenges facing the u.s. including american influence and engagement globally, the changing international order and emerging nations. two of the featured panelists included thomas friedman, "new york times" foreign affairs columnist and author of "the world is flat." and jessica mathews, carnegie president and director of national security office of global issues. >> good evening. my name is david rothkopf, and i will be the moderator for this evening. in the carnegie endowment discussion about how should the next american president engage the world. this is a debate format discussion. we have a terrific group of panelists here. starting on the far right we have professor john ikenberry of princeton. next is tom friedman of the new york times. next to him is our own jessica matthews of the carnegie endowment, and beside jessica is bob kagan at the brookings institution and we are going to cover several
the commonwealth here. mitt romney has picked virginia as the place to lay out his foreign policy agenda. the governor's going to be speaking at the virginia pill tear institute in lexington tomorrow. larry, why is virginia so important this time around? >> well, last time virginia was the closest to president obama's national average. nationally, he got 52.9% of the vote. virginia, he got 52.6%. so virginia is increasingly seen as a fulcrum in the national election. doesn't have to turn out the same way this time, obviously, but virginia is a prize that both sides want, and there's a good reason. it's actually very, very close. much closer than some of the national polls have suggested. >> larry, how has the state changed politically and/or demographically over the past four years? >> well, you've added a percent minority to virginia's population. i would say probably white voters in virginia will constitute no more than 72% of the turnout. the rest will be minority. president obama gets 80% on average of all minorities put together whereas romney needs to cross, in this state certainly
thought. gretchen, tell us what is happening. the middle east is in flames. >> gretchen: foreign policy did not come up last night it was not part of the schedule. maybe they will talk about it next time. this is what happened last night. turkey firing rounds in syria. this is the second straight day. ♪ it comes one day after a shell inside of syria landded on a home in turkey leaving a mom, three daughters and another woman dead. syria later offered condollences. now a deadly form of menigitus leaving four people dead in five states. that number could grow. it is believed that a steroid injected for back pain started the outbreak. it could affect anyone receiving the injection. the massachusetts pharmacy that makes the injection recalling three lots of the drug. >> 1980 spy film. a rushiann-born businessman a secret agent. alexander fushenko will be in court charged with shipping the parts from houston to new york and russia. they include missile guidance systems and detonation systems. russia denying the spy agencies were involved. >> if you are a -- yourr presidential cand date doe
of staff to vice president quayle and secretary of education bill bennett. he also served as foreign policy adviser to senator john mccain. i'm sure all of you see built regularly on "fox news sunday" and the fox news channel. i actually met bill in 1981 when he was a very young, assistant professor at the university of pennsylvania. it's been great to see all the things he has accomplished since that time. so the questions i'd like to pose for each of you come and i'll start with governor huntsman, what does the 2012 election reveal about the respected leadership styles of obama and romney? >> probably not much at this point. >> well, this panel is over. [laughter] >> see you later. >> so you can extrapolate a few things from president obama's first term that might be instructive. he isn't a manager. he is not come he doesn't have a history of managing things, so you bring in a lot of good well-trained smart people, given the tasks and you try to lead a government. and in the case of governor romney, who has been a governor, who is a business guy, he's run the olympics. i think his attitud

[laughter] >> you could extrapolate a few things from president obama's first term that may be instructive. he is not the manager. he does out of a history of managing things. you bring in a lot of good, well trained people and give them tasks and try to lead a government. in the case of mitt romney, who has been a governor, a business guy. he has run the olympics. i think his attitude would be efficiency. i will come in and look at running governments, like a business, which is not always the right answer because government is not a business. you should always lo
. it will be a small town hall style. there will be questions on domestic and foreign policy. bill: there is no rest for president obama as you imagine. back to the campaign grind today, mr. obama holds a rally in denver. anded henry traveling live with the president in denverment what is the campaign saying this morning about last night? >> very chilly this morning in denver, chilly reception for the president last night from right to left. i spoke as to stewart stevens, and he said luke can't have bill clinton stand in for you in these debates. it's the one man going head-to-head with the challenger. bill mahr said maybe the t-t doe president does need his teleprompter. when he loses bill mahr he's in a little bit of trouble. i think the president started long with trying to reframe everything. it's not about the last four years it's a choice for the next four years. >> the question here tonight is not where we've been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy and rollback regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a differe
quickly though, governor romney is going to be giving a big foreign policy speech coming up after the weekend? >> reporter: that's scheduled to take place on monday back here fittingly in virginia. it will be at vmi on monday. it's an opportunity to attack the president again and dominate romney's readiness to lead. this is something they were prepared to talk about at the debate, supposed to be a debate about domestic issues. they thought there was a potential during the final 15 to 20 minutes when the conversation turned to the role of governing for mitt romney to perhaps be able to attack the president's mishandling in their view of foreign policy issues. since that didn't take place they hope to make that point this coming monday. >> peter alexander traveling with the romney camp in virginia. peter, thank you. >>> two days after the first presidential debates and democrats are still having this bit of a hangover as republicans try to continue seizing on wednesday night's momentum. it was a big night for mitt romney, but will that first face-off really affect how undecided amer

[applause] somehow the people in new orleans don't care about as much. >> brands taste the reverence comments were defensive added time when we need unity racially charged when we need to come together to solve monumental problems black or white latino, asian, that confront us all. lou: the obama's campaign supporters doing everything they could to be down the story even before it was revealed on hannity last night. the response team sent out a list of skeptical from the york magazine and the "new york times" all professing the injustice station justice saying that the video was published before. we will take up with the former pentagon official and former reagan advisor the "a team" the most important question is if governor romney comes out swinging or takes a more passive approach joining us now is steve hayes. in the way the world you

tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern. the last debate will have a theme of foreign policy. the carnegie endowment for international peace recently hosted a panel on the president's role in leading foreign policy talking about american influence, the changing international order, and more. among the panelists is a thomas friedman. this is about an hour and half. >> good evening. my name is david rothkopf and i will be the moderator for this carnegie endowment discussion about how the next american president should engage the world. this is a debate format it discussion. we have a terrific group here. on my right, we have john ikenberry from princeton. next to him as thomas friedman from "the new york times." then just a matter is from the carnegie endowment. then robert keeton from the brookings institute. -- jessica matthews and then robert kagan. i will open up with a quotation from one or two of the panelists and we will then have some interaction on the theme of the ". lanham alaskan questions about related issues. at the end of each one of these 20 or 25 minute sections i will look to you for
and will focus entirely on foreign policy. cbs face the nation host, bob schiefer moderates. >> we need to tackle our nation's challenges before they tackle us. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security and we're putting the ideas on the table how to do that. we're not going to try to scare seniors. we'll save these benefits for seniors and for my generation so these promises are kept. >> they have laid out clearly, they say, that what barack obama and joe biden did they have endangered medicare. they have stole money from medicare and they have done it to get obamacare and all this. and you see it in the ads and hear it in everything they say. nothing could be further from the truth. >> next thursday night, october 11th, congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden will face off in their only debate. abc news's martha radditz moderates from center college in danville, kentucky. you can watch and engage with c-span in the live debate preview at 7:00 p.m. iron and following the debate at 9:00. e-mails, calls and tweets at 10:30. c-span radio and c-span online at c-span.org.
important foreign- policy debate between nixon and kennedy were islands off the main island of china. those of us on the panel, we thought there were possibly an oriental dance team. [laughter] >> you heard it here. >> let's take a look at another clip from 1988. >> governor, it kiddy were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penay for the killer? peacoat know, i do not. i think you know i oppose the death penalty during all of my life. i do not see any evidence it is a deterrent. i think there are better and more effective ways to deal with violent crime. we have done so in my own state, and one of the reasons why we have had the biggest drop in crime of any industrial state in america and the lowest murder rates. we have work to do in this nation. we of work to do to fight a real war that the phony war. -- we have work to do to buy the real war thanot a phony war. we have much to do to step up the war. >> some say that these debates are not really debates, but joint press conferences. the answer was seen somewhat determining the outcome of the election, but what they u
of the administration was to downplay the attack because they don't want any foreign policy -- nobody comes to a protest with rocket launchers so it had -- they are the markings of something more than a spontaneous protest than had gone awry. but i do think the white house is basically placing the burden of the white house on the intelligence agency and saying they were following what they were being told and they didn't really confirm that it was a terrorist attack until some days, even a week later. and i think the president, in his initial remarks at the white house did call it an act of terror, just, yeah, all the protests. >> okay. anne let's listen to a bit more here of the matter on mete the press. >> the president failed the level of the american people and called it a trift attack. because you had to be concerned about another terrorist attack in the middle east after al qaeda had been defeated. >> that's preposterous and really offensive. this presidential record on terrorism takes a back seat to no one. >> ann, is the white house at all concerned this may become an issue on the campaign trail
a good one from nick who helps us out. tough on foreign policy. even his hairline is receding. >> that's good. >> that's good. >> yeah, no. it's amazing to me when you look at these and you see this, it can be funnier not in presidential debates, senate races, house races, where they show up and try too hard and often you find that's their undoing. >> i was going to say, i think we have adequately demonstrated that maybe the zinger strategy not going to work. >> not good. >> not presidential. >> we'll just say, wow, he was surprisingly sober and presidential. >> at least now we'll all be looking for the zingers during the debate. >> best zingers don't appear as though they are zingers written and canned months ago. there you go again. they seem very smooth. >> reagan in '84 had that line they work eed on when he blanke out in the first debate. they said you're 73 years old, are you really up to the job. he said i do not think age should be an issue in this campaign. i will not exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> but he's bean actor. it seemed to natu
is foreign policy. and i said, what is your role if one of the other says something that is not true? >> he he said if it is outrageo, i will step and. but it is designed to let each of the candidates say that is not the case. at the very least, it will make for a pretty good tv watching. and one of the hopes is that they do not go too far in misrepresenting their opponent's record. >> this has been a year for the fact checkers. if the candidate did not say so many factually incorrect things -- what i was going to say, i was reminded by catherine's mention of the ford incident. the fact is that the overnight polls did not show that the public was aware that he had made this horrendous misstatement. it was only after a week of the press incessantly talking about the incident that the polls turn around and people decided that he had lost the debate. what i like to do, we have the debate watch at penn state on campus. we bring 200 or 300 students in to watch the debate. so they can make up their own minds about the debate and not listen to the spin doctors to form their opinion. >> what i reme
that they don't have a handle on foreign policy. and national security matters. yet, it is going to get messier and messier. in fact, it looks like you know the administration has been involved in a coverup. claiming it was all caused by this youtube video. when, in fact, it was clearly result of the development with request to al-qaeda and terrorism in africa. >> dana: news reports show that the intel community knew it was al-qaeda related in 24 hours. there was other news today. this was on the front page of the "new york times." that the u.s. tracking the killers in the attack on the libya mission. how does it get announced? >> kimberly: they are trying to get political cover to make up for this. this is abysmal failure on the part of the obama administration. an the state department. his state department. repeated requests for made for security to have security of the embassy and consulate. they have blood on their hands. you will end up with dead americaning. good job. >> bob: you were a prosecutor. evidence of facts, name me the evidence and facts. >> bob: these are the intelligence repor
will continue to struggle to defend its position on these issues. >> some say that obama pose foreign-policy is diminishing. >> absolutely not. we will have that discussion. >> [indiscernible] >> it's going to be a close race. we have said that from the first day. we will go on campaigning with the next to debates. you saw mitt romney continuing to try to defend it himself on issues that have been problematic for him in the battleground states. >> who do you think won the debate? >> the president, clearly. talking on taxes, jobs, medicare, we are on the right side of those issues and mr. romney continues to be on the defense. romney was testy. >> they did not mention the 47%. >> that was not a deliberate decision from the romney campaign -- from the obama campaign not to mention that. what is important is you are sitting on your couch in denver or des moines or charlotte and listening to the clear difference between the two candidates and that's what you got tonight and that's what will be good for the president. >> [indiscernible] >> i think we have continued to lay out a clear vision on ho
't that tremendous when it comes to foreign policy. don't expect tremendous differences on the middle east. about what we should be doing there. or for the federal reserve or spending. so i think it'll be interesting to see if we get any factual good information on what these two gentlemen believe in. >> big difference on taxes. let's bring john harwood in. john? >> congressman paul, as carl mentioned, you had a rapport with mitt romney. when we talked a few weeks ago, you said you weren't going to fully endorse mitt romney at the republican convention because you didn't fully support him. what i'm wondering is, is there anything you can say tonight that would cause you to do that? are you ultimately looking at these two guys as not that much different on the core issues that are important to you? >> well, i'm always looking. i'm always open but i'm not that optimistic. because his foreign policy was the policy that disturbed me the most. he was much more aggressive on where the troops should be and what we should do overseas. that didn't interfere with us having a decent rapport with each other
code, position on women's health concerns and foreign policy and national security. and he has proven adept at walking the tight rope at great heights by refusing to take a stand on any issue of any substance at any time this entire campaign cycle. the problem with this clown show is that while it's been entertaining, the ticket price is also very high. as the gop verges on going from grand old party to tired old side show americans are denied a functioning two-party system, a robust debate that is at the very heart of our democracy. so, governor romney, kindly set aside the youtube clips, the you didn't build thats, and the conservative dog whistles that guess what all of us can hear, put up a good fight, an honest fight, in the end politics may still be a circus, but the country deserves more than just peanuts. thanks again to kurt, richard, karen and michael. that is all for now. i will see you back here tomorrow for post-debate analysis at noon eastern, 9:00 a.m. pacific when joined by savannah guthrie, former governor ed rendell, professorer michael eric dyson and james lipton of
to -- >> congress get the numbers right. >> let me ask you about a foreign policy. we're having a lot of problems in afghanistan. vice president biden had a plan to switch from a counter insurgency plan and go toll an anti terrorism strategy. that limits our casualties and focuses on al qaeda. why didn't you do that, mr. president? it would have saved a lot of lives. >> that overstates the president's position. he's a very sophisticated analyst of that region. i'm filibustering here. but, then, if i were president obama i would say, look, the vice president and i agree that when we came to office, we were losing a war. we were losing it badly and losing it in a way that would have been catastrophic for the region and would have made americans less safe. so i increased the troop presence there, stabilized the situation, got to a point where we would be able to withdraw. >> was biden right? >> biden was one of our advisers. he had input on our decision and -- >> in the fight over whether the fight in afghanistan and fighting a counter-insurgency campaign, were you wrong and was your vice president
to hear foreign- policy discussed. although i know that it is not on the list. i want to see the character of the man. >> i want to see if mitt romney is clear about what he is going to do. and i know that he is going to spend more money and more regulation but that is not going to help the economy. weather or not he can have a clear plan of his own. >> coming up at 8:00 p.m. what they had to say after the debate. that is coming up kron 4 news at 8:00 p.m. in the meantime to recess talk show, kron 4. >> the debate locations. therese o a mustachi estacio --k you. and there is both candidates. the moderator jim lear from pbs and they will talk about domestic issues for 15 minutes. team coverage continues in san francisco with reggie kumar at a debate watch party with president obama supporters. >> this debate watch party at this tumbled nightclub is one of the largest gatherings in the country. this temple nightclub. the line is all the way out to the parking lot with large television screens. with this large cut out cardboard. >> how are we going to progress from here? with jobs. we are at
the numbers some. for example you have economic crises and foreign policy crises. if you play poker, you're used to playing your hand well. you catch a lucky card or you play bad and catch the card of your life. you used to think about improbability. you are calmer when you watch the he ebb and flow of polls an political news. >> you talk about weather forecasting has improved over the years, and the glitch that sort of caused the ibm computer to beat gary in the 1997 chess game. what are the worst at predicting? what do we get wrong more than anything else? >> in general the field of economic prediction is a pretty bad example. for example, in december of 2007, most people in the "wall street journal's" forecasting panel, 45 distinguished economists said we would not go into a recession over the next year. in fact, it turned out we were already in recession by december 2007. it was later revealed through the data. when we're in a recession we don't know it half the time and can't predict the macro economy more than six months in advance. you had all kinds of problems with people expecti
